Why I love Richard Linklater

1) He's shy and awkward. And nice.
2) He makes movies because he's madly in love with movies.
3) He makes films I love and he makes films I'm not so crazy about.
4) He makes movies as experiments and exercises.
5) He takes a lot of risks.
6) He savors the process.
7) He loves Austin and is super humble about being the reason why Austin is a mecca for indie filmmakers.
8 He doesn't wait for permission.
9) I just think he's really cool. And today when I saw him speak at the NAMAC conference I wanted to tell him "You're so cool". I felt like a silly, giddy groupie. But whatever.
